    “Don’t cry. We still have Verisign stock.”

    That was pure awesome.

  3. Winston Churchill says:

    ’twas stupid.

    Not sure the point of it. Yes the gTLD concept is foolish and yes it is destined to fail, but not sure what that video had to do with anything.

    Students of history are well aware that the new gTLDs will soon all go the way of .aero, .travel, .mobil and .ccop.

  4. Winston Churchill says:

    er…i meant .coop. Also, let us not forget .tel, .pro, .cat, .jobs, .museum, info and soon…yes, .xxx. I agree with the video’s point that this extended delay is only helping GoDaddy sell .CO, but they too will have a short life expectancy. Only .COM will come out of this intact since there is always a demand for quality and traffic. The others all lack that and the new gtlds most certainly will.

  5. Neville Chamberlain says:

    I have now reached an agreement with Chancellor Hitler which, I believe, will assure new gtlds in our time.

    WTF! WTF!!!!!!

    Are you implying my .KissMyAss TLD is worthless????

    I’m going to get a warrant and do a ip lookup and sue you.

    Game over for you man. Game over!

    The Verisign comment is appropriate…..while others registered .anything and .garbage, Verisign registered the their “.com” and “.net” brands in a multiple of foreign scripts and languages including Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Arabic and a few other top languages.

  9. Bill W says:

    The Verisign comment is fitting regarding her gTLD rollout While others registered .anything and .garbage, Verisign registered the their “.com” and “.net” brands in a multiple of foreign scripts and languages including Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Arabic and a few other top languages, and we hear a pair of .anythings to boot.

    Priceless.
